The Arm Cannon is the primary weapon utilized by the intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran from the Metroid series.

Features[edit | edit source]

The cannon is built into her power suit's right forearm, giving her permanent access to it. The cannon has an extremely large variety of upgrades and types to make it efficient in differing situations. These types include:

  • Power Beam: This is the cannon's usual fire-mode where it fires simple pellets of energy
  • Charge Beam: The charge beam charges up the power beam's shot, giving it more destructive capabilities
  • Long Beam: Grants the beam a longer range
  • Ice Beam: Replaces the power beam's energy blasts with flash freezing cyro-shots
  • Missile: Shoots a less sufficient ammunition of explosive missiles. These missiles have variants as well:
    • Ice Missile: Replaces the missile's usual incendiary ammo with explosive ice ones
    • Seeker Missile: Allows Samus to fire five missiles simultaneously
    • Super Missile: Increases the usual missile in destruction and size dramatically
